12 oz bottle into Hardywood Park tulip. no bottled on date.
A: ah definitely not anything remotely German Pils looking. dark, dark brown body. head has brown hints to it as well. retention is good as is the thick coat of lacing left behind.
S: lots of roasted, dark malt. slightly acrid, a little bit of smoulder. not getting any hop aroma, all dark grain.
T: starts dark and stinging. sharp dark malt cuts into the palate. a minor black licorice flavor. finish is dry while remaining refreshing. similar to the nose, not getting any hop flavor and it is hard to tell if the bitterness is from the grain or hops.
M: average/slightly higher carb on a light bodied brew.
D: first of all, this should be labeled on this website as a Schwarz, not simply as a German Pils. baring the mis-labeling on BA, this is a pretty solid Schwarz. plenty of bitter dark malt while not being fruity. lager-like throughout. wouldn't hate for a touch more on the hop aroma side of things, maybe some aroma has worn off due to time since bottling, but without any date coding impossible to tell.

A- cola/rootbeer type of look to it. Minimal head and ok lacing. Nothing exciting.
S- roatsed dark malts but no hop presence in the nose. it tends to be confusing because i am not getting an dominate scent.
F- caramelized sugar and molasses is what i get but i tastes like i am drinking a root beer with alcohol and dark malts mixed in.
M- smooth and light on the creamy side. It is nice gulper.
O- interesting and different. I dont beleive i have ever had a schwarzbier do i cant rate it accurately.

A - I love a good dark beer, and this one doesn't disappoint. Thin white head that disappeared quickly (sadly) but a deep blackened amber body helps to keep my attention.
S - Unlike a lot of dark beers I drink which have powerful odors, this doesn't really have any smell at all. I'm not sure if it's just because it was really cold or what, but no matter how hard I try to find anything scent to follow, I just can't find anything.
T - Tastes surprisingly good for having no smell. Tastes kinda like dark bread, maybe some molasses, and I can taste a little funk from the hops, but nothing overwhelming. Great session beer, but don't go in expecting anything deep.
M - Watery but smooth, and not washed-out feeling. Like a generic macro beer.
O - Not bad. A unique brew if anything, a gimmick if you will. Don't get me wrong, it's a good beer, but I would've hoped a little more character could be in a unique beer such as this. Regardless, SBC still has yet to disappoint me, so keep it up guys!
